Roger Goodell hates the snow and the fun you can have with it

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on December 24, 2008

I’ve concluded that Roger Goodell is just a grumpy old bastard In the video above you see the Jets’ Shaun Ellis “playfully” throwing a freaking block of ice snowball at fans, who by the way, started it by throwing snowballs at him and his teammates. In Philadelphia they would have thrown a sleigh right back in Ellis’ face.

Favre threw a snowball into the stands but it got picked off. Of course Goodell fines Ellis ten thousand dollars, apparently only NFL sanctioned snowballs can be used for post-game fan splattering. Plaxico would have found a way to drop that snowball on his leg.

I wonder what the fine will be for the Wes Welker snow angel incident.

Just wait until this weekend, when TO celebrates a touchdown by writing his name in the snow.

Glocks & Athletes Are Not A Good Combination

Posted by Joel Jackson on December 1, 2008

I was well prepared to talk about Tennessee hiring Lane Kiffin and what I thought of it. I along with millions of other Volunteer fans have my opinion, but I want to spend this time to talk about a troubling trend the past, oh, 14 years or so. I am about to do my best Jason Whitlock impersonation, except I am not as big, well-known, or paid.

I have known and/or met quite a few pro athletes in my day. By and large, the ones that I have met are down to earth guys, trying to improve themselves in the sport that they play. They are trying to improve themselves so they can improve their bank accounts. For the athletes that have come from little to nothing growing up, they try to help out family and friends along their journey to fame and fortune. This cycle can lead to problems.

To the athletes reading this blog, please do the following couple of things for me:

*Leave the guns at home…

I am watching the Redskins vs. Giants game. Ironic because on this day, where the Redskins are honoring fallen teammate Sean Taylor, who was murdered in his home a year ago, Plaxico Burress is facing weapons charges because he decided to go “Cheddar Bob” on his thigh while carrying a handgun illegally (or he wanted to be on the next diss record of Eminem, 50 Cent, and Busta Rhymes). If the club was such a bad place to be, then why go??? He’s married (to a lawyer) and has a young son. Why put yourself through now facing jail time over seeing some ass shaking at the club, and get teammate Antonio Pierce involved??? Stephen Jackson, Jamaal Tinsley, and Marvin Harrison would agree. If you are about to go somewhere and you think that you need a gun, then don’t go. If I need a gun to go to my local Quickie Mart for a chocolate squishy, then I won’t be seeing Apu that night. Which leads me to the next point…

*Do not own more than 3 guns…

A wise man once told me that if you are gonna own a gun for home protection, get 3. One should be a handgun that you can grab quickly (Glock), one should be a rifle or shotgun, and one should be a small pistol that your woman could shoot in a pinch (.22 or .38). Whether this is wise or not, I think this is sound advice. In other words, do not be Tank Johnson. And if you wanna be a rapper, PLEASE do not be T.I.

*Last, everyone is not out to get you…

Unless you allow yourself to be associated with bad people, not everyone is out to get you. Yes, crime is everywhere, and what happened to Sean Taylor was a tragedy not of his doing, but of 4 kids who wanted to take a short cut at getting ahead. At the same time, you athletes for the most part have more money than I will ever see. Use some of that to invest in a security company and let bodyguards carry the weapons. Because if you pull a Plax and not have that concealed handgun license, you could shoot yourself at 3 a.m., or face jail time. And please don’t rob any convenience stores…

This weeks mandatory Brett Fa*** post: Is the Fa*** circus coming to a close?

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on August 6, 2008

This whole soap opera started with an itch Fa*** had that tough acting Tinactin couldn’t cure. Things went from Fa*** wanting to be released, to Fa*** wants to stay with the pack (as early as last Sunday) to Fa*** now where Fa*** will likely be traded.

Here’s a detailed timeline to help you figure it out:

  • Jan. 20: Packers lose NFC Championship Game to the Giants in OT
  • March 6: Fa*** conducts retirement news conference and cries again
  • April 3: Denies rumors of a comeback
  • April 4: Agent reportedly contacts teams to gauge trade interest
  • April 9: Says he might consider comeback if opportunity was presented
  • June 20: Fa*** tells Coach Mike McCarthy he may want to play
  • July 2: Fa*** says reports of return were “all rumor” in other words he lied
  • July 6: Sends text message to Packers GM Ted Thompson
  • July 8: Fa*** asks for release with understanding he won’t be starter
  • July 11: Packers receive letter from Fa*** formally requesting release
  • July 16: Packers file tampering charges with NFL against Vikings
  • July 19: Returns to Lambeau Field to attend Packers Hall of Fame ceremony
  • July 25: Fa*** tells Packers he plans to report to training camp
  • July 29: Faxes reinstatement request to NFL
  • July 30: Meets with Packers president Mark Murphy in Mississippi
  • July 31: Fa*** offered millions to not report to camp
  • Aug. 3: NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reinstates Fa***
  • Aug. 4: Fa*** reports to training camp and is added to active roster after passing physical
  • Aug. 5: Left practice facility in the afternoon … did not practice with the team … met with Packers officials to discuss trade options … say “the best thing for this team is for us to part ways” … considers talking to the Buccaneers about a possible trade.

Fa*** has basically shown the world that one person can be bigger than the franchise. Even with the chance to win his starting job back, McCarthy claims Fa*** couldn’t seem to get past emotional wounds that were opened as tensions mounted in recent weeks.

This may sound cruel but IMHO Fa*** did it to himself.

“The football team’s moving forward,” McCarthy said. “The train has left the station, whatever analogy you want. He needs to jump on the train and let’s go. Or, if we can’t get past things that have happened, I have to keep the train moving.”

After reading that quote I can honestly see the coach breakout into his version of “Proud Mary.”

“They told him, ‘We’ll trade you, but not within the division,’ “Favre’s agent, James “Bus” Cook, told USA Today for Wednesday’s editions. “His first desire was to play here. Their first desire was for him not to play here.”

McCarthy is keeping quiet about the trade talks, but did say a quick resolution to the situation is important to the rest of his players.

“Absolutely,” McCarthy said. “The players, they want it resolved. Even talk to Brett about it — he feels bad about it. It’s time for them to talk about somebody else.”

“We’re at a stalemate,” Favre told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. “Mike and I both agreed last night that me being out there is a distraction and will continue to be a distraction. We all know the reason I’m here is because the commissioner reinstated me, so we have a lot of things to figure out. It’s simple and complicated, both at the same time.”

When this mess does end one thing is certain, Thompson and McCarthy, will be known as, the guys who ran Fa*** out of Town.

He’s going to retire, he’s not going to retire, he wants to take the buy out, he doesn’t want to take the buyout, he wants to play for the Packers, he doesn’t want to play for the Packers, he doesn’t want to play for Tampa, he wants to play for Tampa….does this guy even know what he wants. I’m so sick of this being on every sports channel 24/7 that I could puke. The guy is acting like a spoiled kid. “I’m going to take my ball and go home”. I’ll admit he is a great player but I honestly do not blame the Packers for being tired of his antics. As football fans I believe we all are.

Pacman Jones Wants to be Known as the Player Formally Known as Pacman

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 23, 2008

Pacman is dead according to Adam Jones AKA the player formally known as Pacman.

The still suspended Dallas Cowboys cornerback would like to be called by his given name and make “Pacman” a thing of the past.

“There’s really just a lot of negativity behind it,” Jones said. “It’s just time for a change, man. I’m doing everything to make sure that I’m all right as a person, mentally and emotionally.”

This is a good start for Adam Jones but not the answer to fixing his problems.

After speaking to about 60 kids at a basketball camp hosted by Dallas Mavericks forward Brandon Bass on Saturday, Jones expressed his desire to drop his nickname.

The kids at the camp called out “Pacman Jones! Pacman Jones!” after he spoke to them. But he signed autographs with his given name, not the nickname given to him by his mother when he was an infant.

“My mom is going to call me ‘Pacman.’ That is what it is. I can’t change that,” Jones said. “I’m not saying that my teammates won’t call me ‘Pacman’ on the field. But for the most part, I want to be Adam or Mr. Jones.”

This is called spin and damage control. This is why the NFL wants Jones to wear a suit and tie on the Dallas sidelines if he isn’t participating in play.

I bet Jerry Jonesis thinking

“As long as he helps me win a Super Bowl, I couldn’t care less if he murdered half of South America and supplied cocaine to the rest of the country outside of Texas… but at least let’s spin it to seem like we give a damn to these idiot sports fans.”

Rosters handed out by the Cowboys during their mandatory minicamp last week listed No. 21 as “Pacman Jones,” because that’s what he told team officials to do. Go figure…

Also when Jones conducted an interview at the Cowboys’ facility on June 4 he didn’t bother mentioning that he planned to forsake his nickname.

I will no longer call him Adam “Pacman” Jones. The new name is Adam “Rainman” Jones. Rainman always makes sure that the dollars rain down on the ladies at the club, even if it causes shootings, assaults, and other incidents beyond his simple mind’s control.

At the same time Pacman’s oops…Rainmans’ name has recently appeared in the news. A woman involved in the Las Vegas brawl was found dead last week behind a building in the Bronx. Officers found her unresponsive with injuries consistent with a fall.

The woman, 26-year-old Sadia Morrison, had pleaded no contest to a felony battery charge last year in Las Vegas. Jones pleaded no contest to a disorderly conduct charge in Las Vegas after police said he incited the melee.

Back in Tennessee, a foreclosure sale was published involving Jones’ home and 30 acres in a Nashville suburb. The home and land are scheduled to be sold Friday on the courthouse steps. Tax records show Jones purchased the property in July 2006 for $1.5 million, but he defaulted on the terms and conditions of a mortgage.

I’ll give Adam “Rainman” Jones half a season until his entire name is permanently “a thing of the past”. . . . Except when people talk about how a 24 year old multi-millionaire got his home foreclosed on because he was taking his mortgage payments and making it rain.

Odell Thurman Done Smoked Himself Retarded

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 3, 2008

Some players that attend SEC schools are complete nimrods and dumb asses while in school but then there’s other players that leave school for the NFL, NBA, MLB etc. etc. that just turn a 180º once they achieve their goal of turning into a professional athlete. One such athlete is Odell Thurman.

As a second-round draft choice in 2005, Thurman led the Bengals with 148 tackles, four forced fumbles and five interceptions. He was suspended by the league for four games in July 2006 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. If you puff puff pass you don’t play play get paid in the NFL a novel concept really.

The suspension was extended for the rest of the year after Thurman was arrested by the Po Po on Sept. 25 for drunk driving. He later admitted in court that he is an alcoholic due to the jealousy of being second best to UGA IV.

Thurman applied for reinstatement before the 2007 season, but he was denied as well, setting conditions for his return by Roger “The Sheriff” Goodell. However Goodell did lift the suspension April 21, 2008, but the Bengals waived him last month when he failed to show up for offseason workouts, citing the death of his grandmother.

“His grandmother’s been buried for quite a while. Don’t get into his whole family structure,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis recently told local reporters. “We’ve been patient enough with Odell.”

Thurman’s representative, Safarrah Lawson, countered by saying:

“I will tell you, the death in his family he has taken extremely hard, much harder than I would’ve even thought. To lose the last remnant of his family [affected him].”

When my father died some years ago, I didn’t go on a drinking binge. I didn’t do any drugs. I didn’t get myself arrested. The only thing I did to get through it was work. Work is a good way to get away from things in your personal life that might not be so good and vice versa and it doesn’t require getting hammered or locked up. He’s a football player for goodness sake. He could have taken out all of his aggression, anger, hurt and any other emotion he was keeping pent up just by playing ball. It would have been a much more constructive outlet than what he chose to do instead.

Well guess what, Thurman is facing an indefinite suspension after violating the league’s substance abuse policy AGAIN! This is the second time in three seasons. Thurman is now wearing a silver and red F in his chest for FAIL.

All the people were questioning why the Bengals released Thurman. Well, now they got their answer. However I find it amazing that Odell might be banned from the league for his substance abuse PacMan and his 10+ arrests might be returning.

I would choose drugs over millions of dollars as well, it seems like the smart move!

There is nothing sadder in life than wasted talent. Odell Thurman has truly wasted his talent. This guy needs help, needs to get his life together, start making better decisions. He should forget about football. He may never be reinstated, but he has bigger issues to deal with. Football is a short lived career, and this guy should have many years to live after football. If he doesn’t change his ways, that life will be miserable, short, or possibly both. Truly sad.

Here We go it’s SpyGate Part Deux: The Governments Revenge (starring Jack Nicholson as coach Bill Belichick)

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on May 15, 2008

All I wanted for my birthday was SpyGate to end however much like Cher’s insufferable singing career SpyGate refuses to die thanks to an “incensed” Philadelphia Eagles fan in Congress. Now it’s time to get the government involved. Oh yay…joy.

Sen. Arlen Specter on Wednesday called for an independent investigation of the New England Patriots’ taping of opposing coaches’ signals, setting up another hearing much like the high-profile Mitchell report on performance-enhancing drugs in baseball but with less comedy unless they can tie in Roger Clemens.

“I have documented the strong factual case that a NFL investigation was neither objective nor adequate,” Specter said on Wednesday evening. “If the commissioner doesn’t move for an independent investigation, then there will be a permanent black mark on the NFL and the Patriots’ record will be historically tainted. Depending on the public reaction, I may ask the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on the NFL antitrust exemption.”

This guy is now just embarrassing himself. He needs to up his credibility by moving on to JFK assassination conspiracies and re-opening the investigation at Roswell.

At an earlier news conference in the Capitol, Specter put it bluntly:

“What is necessary is an objective investigation. And this one has not been objective.”

This is now officially out of control. Apparently Specter needs a $5000/hr hooker to occupy some of his time because with the way he is going at this SpyGate nonsense he obviously has too much time on his hands.

The Pennsylvania Republican is unforgiving of his criticism of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, saying that Goodell has made “ridiculous” assertions that wouldn’t fly “in kindergarten.” The Senator said Goodell was caught in an “apparent conflict of interest” because the NFL doesn’t want the public to lose confidence in the league’s integrity. Quite honestly he might be right…but still…damn.

“They are enormous role models for everybody,” Specter said. “If you can cheat in the NFL, you can cheat in college, you can cheat in high school, you can cheat on your grade-school math test. There’s no limit as to what you can do. I think they owe the public a lot more candor and a lot more credibility.”

Goodell essentially declared an end to Spygate after a 3½-hour meeting in New York on Tuesday morning with former New England video assistant Matt Walsh. Walsh supplied the league with videotapes of coaches’ signals made by the Patriots but offered no new significant revelations about the cheating scandal that has threatened to taint the team’s three Super Bowl titles.

Goodell said afterward that the information from the interview with Walsh “was consistent with what we disciplined the Patriots for last fall,” when the commissioner docked the team a 2008 first-round draft pick (which for some reason they still had) and fined coach Bill Belichick $500,000 and the team $250,000.

But Specter held his own three-hour meeting with Walsh in Washington on Tuesday. He said Walsh detailed how the Patriots used videotaped signals to their advantage: An offensive player would memorize the signals, watch for them on the sideline and pass them on to assistant coach Charlie Weis, who would then inform quarterback Tom Brady.

“And they had some obviously good results,” Specter said.

The NFL issued a response through spokesman Gregg Aiello.

“We respectfully disagree with Senator Specter’s characterization of the investigation conducted by our office. We are following up after yesterday’s meeting with Matt Walsh,” he said.

Patriots spokesman Stacey James said the team had no comment on Specter’s remarks.

Wednesday, the Boston Herald issued a “My Bad” for a story that said the Patriots videotaped a St. Louis Rams walkthrough before the 2002 Super Bowl.

In the apology, published in the newspaper’s Wednesday edition and posted on its Web site, the Herald said the story was based on sources “it believed to be credible.”

“We now know that this report was false and that no tape of the walk-through ever existed,” the paper wrote.

“We should not have published the allegation in the absence of firmer verification. The Boston Herald regrets the damage done to the team by publication of the allegation and sincerely apologizes to its readers and to the New England Patriots’ owners, players, employees and fans for our error,” it said.

However in an interview with HBO scheduled to air Friday night on “Real Sports with Major Tool Bryant Gumbel,” Walsh dismissed Belichick’s attempts to minimize the impact of the taping.

“If it was of little or no importance, I imagine they wouldn’t have continued to do it, and probably not taken the chances of going down onto the field in Pittsburgh or shooting from other teams’ stadiums the way we did,” Walsh said.

Walsh told HBO that his superiors coached him on how to evade NFL rules limiting the number of camera operators per team to two, and that team officials instructed him on ways to avoid detection.

Now correct me if I’m wrong but if Belichick thought he was operating within the rules then why would Walsh need to “avoid detection?”

“When I was doing it, I understood what we were doing to be wrong,” Walsh said. “We went to great lengths to keep from being caught. Just saying that the rules were misinterpreted isn’t enough of an apology or a reasoning for what was done. …

“Coach Belichick’s explanation for having misinterpreted the rules, to me, that really didn’t sound like taking responsibility for what we had done, especially considering the great lengths that we had gone through to hide what we were doing.”

I think a really simple solution to all of video taping crap is to not allow any teams to tape a game. Instead have the NFL tape the game from all angles and then forward a copy of each tape to each team. That way everybody is seeing the same thing. I don’t know just a thought…

This investigation will go away the minute that Comcast gets The NFL Network for free.

And now the devil’s advocate side:

It’s not over until the fans say it’s over. Goodell ran a cover-up. The fact that the Patriots’ punishment was harsher than anything that came before is a testament to how lax the league had been before. Caught with its pants down, they had to do something that “looked” tough. But $250K is nothing to the Pats organization. $500K is not a serious dent to Belichick – and his arrogance after the fact proves it. And the first round draft pick? Come on. Second to last pick in the first round, one they likely would have traded down in order to get a couple of players who may or may not have been relevant to their future. That’s a pretty easy punishment.

Goodell knew he couldn’t push harder than that, or else he’d be admitting that his sport was tarnished, that the great dynasty of our time had been cheating its way to wins and possibly to titles. He had to punish them in an unsatisfying way in order to make it seem like it was something, but not nearly as bad as it was.

Also I would like to know why Goodell had the original tapes destroyed…..that makes absolutely no sense. I am ready to get over this but the sad thing is we never will know how much all of this cheating actually helped the Patriots…..maybe it won them super bowls, maybe it made little difference. I have a feeling we will never know, which sucks. I know this much….Goodell did/does not want the past results of his league to be put into jeopardy. That is not good for business. And that’s all this is…. a business.

It Will be the Best Birthday Present Ever!!!

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 24, 2008

If there’s one thing I hate it’s the acknowledgment of my birthday. I despise getting older & it’s usually a pretty depressing day all around.

However this year promises to be different because on May 13th, the day God cursed the earth with the birth of this Êv¡£ Genius, a chapter in another so-called evil genius’s life will finally be coming to a close.

Matt Walsh will get his day with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. What he has to offer is anyone’s guess.

The former Patriots assistant will meet with Goodell on May 13 about New England’s videotaping of opposing teams. It took a couple of months (81 days to be exact), but the league reached an agreement with Walsh on Wednesday.

“Commissioner Goodell will meet with Mr. Walsh … on May 13, the earliest date that Mr. Walsh, who lives in Hawaii, will be available on the East Coast,” the NFL statement said. “The agreement also requires Mr. Walsh to return any tapes and other items in his possession that belong to the Patriots. In return, the NFL and the Patriots have promised not to sue Mr. Walsh. They also will indemnify him for any expenses, including legal fees that he incurs in connection with the interview.”

Goodell vs spygate. Good rivalry but not as good as Marty McFly v Biff Tennen

During Super Bowl week, and nearly five months after the Patriots were sanctioned for illegal taping of the New York Jets in the season opener — a $500,000 fine for coach Bill Belichick, a $250,000 fine for the organization, and the loss of a first-round draft pick on Saturday — there were reports of possible other videotaping by the Patriots. Those reports centered on Walsh, who shot videos for the Patriots during his six-year stint with the organization before being canned.

“Today, Mr. Walsh and the National Football League reached an agreement under which the NFL will provide legal indemnification and a release of claims against Mr. Walsh relating to his employment by the Patriots and the Patriots’ videotaping operations,” said Walsh’s lawyer, Michael Levy of McKee Nelson LLP. “I am pleased that we now have an agreement that provides Mr. Walsh with appropriate legal protections. Mr. Walsh is looking forward to providing the NFL with the materials he has and telling the NFL what he knows.”

So what might Walsh have and what does he know? The Patriots say he has nothing. However if the evidence is incriminating, Belichick needs to be banned from football and the Rams, Eagles and Panthers need to be crowned champs. IF he has nothing.. it needs to be dropped and NO MORE said about it.

“The New England Patriots are pleased to learn that Matt Walsh is finally willing to come forward to meet with the NFL,” the team said in a statement. “We are eagerly anticipating his honest disclosures to commissioner Goodell next month and the return of all the materials he took during his time of employment. We fully expect this meeting to conclude the league’s investigation into a damaging and false allegation that was originally levied against the team on the day before this year’s Super Bowl.”

The allegation was that New England videotaped the St. Louis Rams’ walkthrough on the day before the 2002 Super Bowl. Although Belichick admitted to Goodell during the Spygate investigation that his team often taped opposing coaches’ signals during games, he adamantly has denied anything about that Super Bowl.

“I’ve never seen a tape of another team’s practice. Ever!” Belichick said at last month’s NFL owners meetings. “Certainly not that one. I think they’ve addressed everything they possibly can address. I’ve addressed so many questions so many times from so many people I don’t know what else the league could ask.”

In their statement Wednesday, the Patriots reiterated that stand:

“At all times, we cooperated fully with the league’s investigation and stand by our initial public statement from Saturday, Feb. 2, 2008: The suggestion that the New England Patriots recorded the St. Louis Rams’ walkthrough on the day before Super Bowl XXXVI in 2002 is absolutely false.”

The agreement with Walsh will allow him to “share with the NFL information about activities occurring during his employment with the club from 1997-2003,” the league said.

Walsh also will be barred from using any material related to Spygate for commercial purposes “or in any manner that could reasonably be expected to be disparaging to the NFL” or the Patriots.

He also will not be allowed to speak with any third parties before meeting with Goodell.

Belichick has said the videotaping was a misinterpretation of the rule. He told Goodell he was handing over all the tapes in September, and Goodell destroyed them. So if Walsh has any evidence, it could be quite damaging to Belichick and the Patriots.

“It is important to note that there has never been a confidentiality agreement restricting Matt Walsh, and no legal protections were ever necessary for him to speak to the NFL, to media outlets or to anyone else regarding his employment with the Patriots,” the team’s statement said. “Walsh has been granted a significant number of privileges through this agreement, none of which the Patriots or the NFL were obligated to give.”

The agreement requires Walsh to hand over all pertinent material by May 8.

Why do they have to wait until May 13th for the meeting? I know Goodell has a lot on his plate with the draft coming up and other preparations for the season, but why not meet with Specter first? Oh, because this has absolutely nothing to do with Specter, or the Government, or any law violation.

You know Specter lost a nut when he heard this. Either way, chances are Walsh has nothing more than tapes of defensive signals…more of the same.

The story has been kept alive by Sen. Arlen Specter, the Republican leader of the Senate Judiciary Committee who has criticized the league’s investigation — specifically the destruction of notes and six tapes turned over by the Patriots from the 2006 season and 2007 preseason. After initially describing the illegal taping as very limited, Goodell later revealed that Belichick had admitted following the same taping practices since he took over the Patriots in 2000.

“I’m glad to see it,” Specter told ESPN.com. “They worked a long time on it and they got it done. I think it is a good thing.”

When asked if he wanted to see the materials, Specter said, “I sure do,” adding that he would ask the league to allow him access to whatever videotapes and notes Walsh turns over.

“To whatever extent the league’s approval is necessary, I will ask them for it in a formal way,” Specter said.

Specter will not be part of the NFL’s interview of Walsh but confirmed he expected to be meeting with Walsh in Washington also on May 13.

As for what he wants to learn from Walsh in their conversation, Specter said:

“I want to know everything. I would begin chronologically. When did the first taping occur? Who directed it? And who knew about it? Who participated in it, and what use was made of it? And what effect did it have on the game, as best he could tell? Was there ever any disagreement about using it?”

The only thing I hope for is if there is anything to Walsh and all this hoopla and if the Pats are found to have been using some unruly tactics that gave them an advantage, punish them. If they are allowed keep their Super Bowl titles then at least make them have to go back to the old uniforms. That would be justice for me.

YMSWWC’s “Official” NFL Draft Preview Picks 1-5

Posted by Joel Jackson on February 12, 2008

Well I am a little bit depressed because the TV will be polluted with coverage of Roger Clemens v. Brian MacNamee. How many times can one hear a variation of “It Wasn’t Me???” Examples: “I didn’t use steroids. Period.” “I did not have sexual relations with woman, Ms. Lewinsky.” “I didn’t kill my wife and her friend.” “I didn’t try to make it rain in the strip club.” “I am not a crook.” So with that said, let us instead focus on the future, where we can hope that this top rated prospect becomes either the next Dan Fouts or the next Tony Mandarich. This year, I think we might have both. Here are the official (unless Thomas says different) YMSWWC NFL Mock Draft Picks (1-5)

ani_mermaid2.gif Miami Dolphins: These heartbreakers have the distinct pleasure of picking first. Yes the needs are many. There is not a position on the field that they do not need any immediate help. Outside of Jason Taylor, you can pretty much trash the roster. In comes Bill Parcells. He will bring organization to a franchise that still is trying to recover from “Saban Nation”. I have heard that a certain billionaire wildcatter who is an Arkansas alum may be trying to trade up with a certain coach turned GM that used to sign that GM’s checks, and that would make sense. Dolphins could use 2 first round picks, but I don’t see that happening. With that said, they will take long hard look at Glenn Dorsey, Jake Long, and Chris Long. So the pick will be: Glenn Dorsey, DT, LSU.

a_sosheep_0205.jpgSt. Louis Rams-Yet another team that went through a hard season. These aren’t your 1999-2002 Rams anymore. They are more like the 1989-1998 Rams. Age, injuries, bad free agent signings have turned these rams into sheep (Quick Longhorn/Aggie joke: How do you know when you are getting close to AggieLand? When you start seeing the sheep back up to the fence). Defense is more of a need than offense at this point. Pick: Chris Long, DE, Virginia.

images.jpeg Atlanta Falcons-Wow. Holy weed smoking, dog fighting, carpet bagging, GM and Coach rejection Batman. What in the world is going on in the ATL??? Well this is actually an easy pick, just because they have one big black hole where the QB spot is (not the black hole that is being pounded in Leavenworth). I think this will be a bad pick, but somebody’s gotta overpay for an All-American QB, so it might as well be Arthur Blank. Pick: Matt Ryan (Leaf), QB, Boston College

soul-hc-c.jpg Kansas City Chiefs-Offensive Line, Offensive Line, Offensive Line. Yes, they need a QB and another WR, but what good is all of that if you have a revolving door for an offensive line??? It’s hard to think that the O-Line was just a few years ago spectacular. Even though I love Ryan Clady from Boise St., that makes too much sense, and the overlord team President known as Carl Petersen doesn’t make decisions that make sense. So: Jake Long, OT, Michigan

chibi-jack-sparrow-by-evilchibiminion.jpg Oakland Raiders-These are some of the most dedicated fans that I have seen, and yet, some of the scariest. I had a couple of friends that went to Whatevertheycallit Coliseum to see Oakland and the Titans play. They figured a nice trip to the Bay Area would be great. Let’s just say that it wasn’t a good trip. One word of advice: If making the trip to see a Raiders game, do NOT wear the other team’s colors unless your name is Kimbo Slice or you love the aroma of beer, weed, and middle aged biker chicks. Of course, this is Uncle Al’s team, and he LOVES offense. Guess who this pick will be??? Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas

Picks 6-10 will be coming soon…

Bill Belichick & Joe Buck: Assholes Of A Feather

Posted by Joel Jackson on February 3, 2008

This is Bill Belichick, walking off the field with 2 seconds left in the game. Yeah, he was completely outcoached and outclassed for this Super Bowl. But he walked off the field with 2 seconds left in the game. Anyone else see anything wrong with this???

This is Joe Buck. Now a few years ago, this sack o’ nuts cried and moaned like a fat chick that just got dumped for the head cheerleader when Randy Moss walked off the field with a few seconds left in a game featuring the Minnesota Vikings vs. Washington Redskins. You would have thought Randy Moss pulled his pants down and mooned the crowd at FedEx Field in DC.

Speaking of pulling his pants down, when Randy Moss mockingly mooned the Green Bay crowd some time later, Joe Buck went gonzo. Joe Buck cried like someone had just put a firecracker up his cat’s rectum.

What’s my point??? Joe Buck didn’t call out his boy Belichick for doing what Randy Moss did just a few years ago. Where was the public outcry against Hoodie like there was when Moss walked out early??? I hate Joe Buck and I should have just muted the TV and listened to the silky smooth back biting voice of Marv Albert on Westwood One Radio. Joe Buck, you ain’t no Jack Buck. Not even close. You just gotta have pics of Uncle Rupert Murdoch naked or something in order for you to keep your job.

As for the game, I never would have thought Eli Manning would win a Super Bowl. Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo should be locked up with a long term deal NOW!!! Wow…

For The Thug Who Has Everything

Posted by Joel Jackson on January 29, 2008

Now this is a present. This game is basically a Monopoly, but instead of “Go To Jail”, you try to break out of jail and/or get parole. This is a description of the game from the official website:

Fight your way through 6 different exciting locations in hopes of being granted parole. Escape prison riots in The Yard, slip glass into a mob boss’ lasagna in the Cafeteria, steal painkillers from the nurse’s desk in the Infirmary, avoid being cornered by the Aryans in the Shower Room, fight off Latin Kings in Gang War, and try not to smoke your entire stash in The Hole.

The artistry of each handcrafted piece is matched with comparable humor & intelligence on every card. Stack your smokes, sharpen your shank, and get ready for an experience that only someone on the outside could appreciate.

Wow. What more can be said. Check out the game pieces. Who among us played Monopoly as a kid and thought “Wouldn’t it be cool if instead of a thimble I could use a Glock as my game piece???”

What’s the sports connection??? Well let’s see: The founder of the company and game is John Sebelius, son of Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Kansas is where America’s “favorite” marijuana smuggling (and smoking), lawsuit avoiding, Valtrex popping, inaccurate throwing, dog killing QB Michael Vick is currently doing his time. But let’s think of the endless possibilities..

How about a “Playmakers” Edition featuring O.J., his white Bronco, memorabilia, copy of “If I Did It”, and a Naked Gun DVD for playing pieces???

Or a “Ballers” Edition, with Kobe attached to a blonde female hotel clerk, Roy Tarpley, transcripts of Tim Donaghy’s gambling probe, Jack Sikma’s perm, and WNBA TV Ratings???

Lastly, what about a “Juiced” version, with Jose Canseco, Barry Bonds, Marion Jones, a syringe, and a torn record book???

If they market this game right, it could be a gold mine. Of course, someone needs to mail some of these games to all SEC schools, so they can play as part of the “Super Secret Double Probation”…
